Respiratory Motion tackles the Biggest Respiratory Challenges by Monitoring Minute Ventilation at AACN NTI 2016

·   Advanced patient Monitoring of Minute Ventilation presents actionable insights to better manage patients with respiratory challenges in critical care and multiple clinical settings

·   For patients prescribed opioids – the nursing goal is to prevent patients from experiencing respiratory failure using real time data measuring respiratory status

·   Waiting to Exhale -  Minute Ventilation: A New Way to Monitor Breathing” a CEU credited course presented by Dennise Haughton, MSN, ARNP, ACNP-BC, CCRN -  in booth 2155

WALTHAM, MA (May 17, 2016) Respiratory Motion, Inc. (RMI) today announced its participation in the 2016 American Association of Critical Care Nurses National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition ( taking place May 16-19 in New Orleans, LA. Committed to helping health care organizations meet their biggest respiratory challenges, Respiratory Motion will showcase it’s ExSpiron™ Minute Ventilation Monitor, the first and only non-invasive method of rapidly determining a patient’s respiratory status.

Study Shows Advantages of Minute Ventilation Over End-Tidal CO2 In Patients Undergoing Procedural Sedation

Waltham, MA (May 6, 2016) Respiratory Motion, Inc. An independent study by the University of Vermont College of Medicine—being presented this week at the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia conference in Orlando, FL—indicates that, “Minute Ventilation (MV) monitoring provides superior information versus capnography (EtCO2) in monitoring non-intubated patients forduring procedural sedation.”

 The study, “Respiratory Volume Monitoring Could Improve Safety in Procedural Sedation,” concluded that the use of Respiratory Volume Monitoring (RVM), as a direct measure of adequacy of ventilation, may substantially reduce the amount of time a patient is in “unsafe” MV status, during an endoscopic procedure, by between 45% to 65%.

Study Shows Minute Ventilation Preferred Over End-Tidal CO2 In Monitoring For Life-Threatening Opioid Induced Respiratory Changes

Waltham, MA (April 28, 2016) Respiratory Motion, Inc. – Research presented at The Deutsche Anesthesia Congress (DAC) Shows Minute Ventilation Monitoring may be preferable to indirect measurement using EtCO2, for non-intubated patients.  

The study “Evaluation of the Relationship between Non-Invasive Minute Ventilation and End-Tidal CO2 in Patients Undergoing General vs. Spinal Anesthesia” points to the value of Minute Ventilation, as direct measure of adequacy of ventilation, in monitoring non-intubated patients for potentially lifethreatening Opioid Induced Respiratory Depression (OIRD).

SCCM Presentation to Show Multiple False Alarms by Pulse Oximetry that Could be Reduced Using Non-Invasive Minute Ventilation Monitoring

Waltham, Mass. (Jan. 15, 2015) – Research to be presented at the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) 44th Annual Conference in Phoenix shows that non-invasive minute ventilation monitoring can be used to identify patients that truly have low oxygen levels.     

A study of 220 post-operative patients at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital found that 64 percent of pulse oximetry alarms were false alarms, said lead author Dr. Christopher Voscopoulos, of Contra Costa Medical Center of Martinez, Calif., who is board certified in Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Management.  In the six cases of real respiratory depression among the patient group, non-invasive monitoring of respiratory volume, known as minute ventilation, identified the condition before pulse oximetry monitors.

Respiratory Motion, Inc. Case Series: AIC Kijabe Hospital, Kenya

Kijabe hospital is a missionary hospital near Nairobi, Kenya. Dr. Mark Newton, Professor of Anesthesiology at Vanderbilt, has worked at Kijabe for over 15 years. This year, Dr. Joseph Schlesinger, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Vanderbilt, brought the ExSpiron 1Xi to Kijabe Hospital as part of a continued emphasis on improving monitoring and patient safety with limited resources. Kijabe is an important training site for surgery, anesthesia, and medicine for health care workers in east Africa.

The ExSpiron 1Xi was used creatively to wean a tracheostomy patient off mechanical ventilation, to titrate comfort care drugs effectively, and to safely extubate in the case of neuromuscular dysfunction.
